Alabama Senate to take up Senate Bill 319 (SB319) tomorrow, Tuesday, April 13

Due to Governor Ivey’s “arm-twisting” of State Lawmakers reported by the media at the end of last week, we have received word that the Alabama Senate plans to take up Senate Bill 319 (SB319) tomorrow, Tuesday, April 13. The pro-gambling forces are declaring that they have the votes to pass the bill. We have also heard that a substitute bill will be introduced on the Senate floor that will add casinos back into the legislation.

The most significant aspect of the bill, however, is that it will include online gambling, making every laptop, tablet and smart phone in Alabama a casino and, specifically, a slot machine! It is imperative that EVERYONE contact your Alabama Senator TODAY and ask him/her to vote NO on SB319!!!

Enter your zip-code. You will be directed to a page where you must scroll down to find your State Legislator.

After contacting your State Senator, please begin contacting your House Member and ask him/her to vote NO on SB319 and any other pro-gambling bill that may come to the House. Also, we would encourage you to contact Governor Kay Ivey’s office and urge her to stop pushing for pro-gambling legislation. She was quoted in one news article last week saying that gambling is “rampant” in Alabama. So is prostitution, domestic violence, sex-trafficking and a host of other activities that are evil, but we don’t legalize and tax those activities. We enforce the laws regarding those activities in order to keep them from becoming worse.

Governor Ivey, if gambling is rampant in Alabama, it is because you and your immediate predecessor removed the ability of the Attorney General to use state troopers to stop the spread of illegal gambling activities. Once you legalize more forms of gambling, more and more people will begin to gamble, especially young people. You don’t stop gambling activity by legalizing it!

Again, please contact your Alabama Senator TODAY and ask him/her to vote NO on SB319!
